NRL Grand final border crossers fined

Three men have been fined more than $4000 each and returned to NSW after allegedly crossing the Queensland border illegally to attend the NRL Grand Final in Brisbane.

Queensland Police allege the trio travelled from Sydney into Queensland through the M1 on the Gold Coast shortly after 2.30pm on Saturday with incorrect border passes.

The men, aged 23, 24 and 25, attended the NRL Grand Final at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.

They were issued with COVID penalty infringement notices of $4135 for breaching Chief Health Officer Directions and have since left Queensland.
